The Timberwolves look to make a move in the Western Conference standing in their last game before the All-Star break. They’re taking on the Denver Nuggets who just came off of a massive win against the Golden State Warriors on Monday night.

Despite a number of injuries to their key players, the Nuggets set an NBA record for three-pointers on their way to a 132-110 victory against the Warriors. For tonight’s game the Nuggets will be without Darrell Arthur (knee), Wilson Chandler (illness), Kenneth Faried (ankle), Danilo Gallinari (groin), Emmanuel Mudiay (back).

The Timberwolves will be missing Lance Stephenson (ankle), Zach Lavine (knee), Adreian Payne (illness), and Nikola Pekovic (ankle).

I will be at the game and do my best to tweet (@vegter21), but let’s be honest, I’m not very good at that sort of thing. John Meyer and @canishoopus are going to provide much better content. Follow our friends at The Denver Stiffs as well (@denverstiffs).

Game thread time. Keep that Valentines feeling going with love for the Wolves and each other. Wolves talk....now!!
